Lacquered Wood Box

$350.00
This storage box is made from Teakwood and covered with a very thick coat of natural tree lacquer. The Lac tree produces a sap that hardens in 2 weeks and can be colored with various mineral pigments. Black (the most common color) was made by adding iron filings. The resulting surface is watertight and insect resistant. This box is from Northern Thailand and dates to the early 20th Century.
